Symptoms

I'm getting a red banner after scanning documents to PDF, using my HP scanner and accompanying software:

**Note: Exact error may differ slightly, depending on the damage.

 

Cause

 This is because HP's software does not adhere to the ISO PDF Specification. See here for further details:

Resolution

 As the issue is with HP's software, not our own, we cannot advise on a resolution using their software. We strongly recommend that you contact HP and reference the forum topic above.

In the meantime, you can use the scanning capabilities of PDF-Tools or the PDF-XChange Editor, to scan to PDF:
